Don: Al Jazeera Eng is on 11082H.

11082H is the weakest transponder used by Freesat.

The slightest bit of rain might be enough to reduce the S/N ratio below that required.

About 6dB S/N is needed. I get 7dB S/N, here in Salford, on a clear day.

The strongest transponder is 10964H, which carries Channel 5, with 15.9dB S/N.

Here are the Freesat services carried on 11082H:

11082.25 H 22000 5/6 DVB-S QPSK:

Thanks for the reply; makes sense now, years ago ( in the Army ) we used to have problems with 'rain fade' at UHF frequencies; also, ( I noticed later), Bloomberg was falling out the same time as Al Jazeera ! Where do you get all this info ?

The effect of moisture in the atmosphere has been well known in technical circles for many years. In the early days of Astra satellite transmissions (around 1989) it was a problem serious enough to recommend larger dishes to minimise the loss of reception due to rain or fog/mist. It was also a known problem with UHF TV reception, especially in 'fringe' areas where the signal strength was poor.

Many RF transmissions are susceptible to the effects of moisture in the atmosphere, not just TV signals.

Don: If news is your thing, it might be best to scan the channels in non-Freesat mode.

11509V 23000 8PSK DVB-S2 2/3
TRT World HD
